Walmart Deals vs. Walmart Shoppers: Finding Secret Clearance

As Walmart has had a good year so far and surpassed many revenue goals, it is returning the favor to Walmart shoppers who flock to their local stores clamoring for deals. Even if you haven’t seen the latest ad for what Walmart has on special still might be able to find some sneaky clearance items. Here are some key takeaways:

  • Walmart does all of its clearance markdowns in-house so they have less chance of surplus inventory or other overhead. This means they can put steep discounts on items, and display them on the shelves without putting them in a separate sale section. Keep your eye peeled. 
  • Walmart store’s secret clearance is often referred to as hidden clearance, as it is hidden in plain sight every day of the week.
  • You can usually find most Walmart clearance items for under $10, however, there are also sales on big-ticket items such as smartphones, hoverboards, televisions or other electronics. 
  • Think of Walmart deals for secret clearance sales like treasure hunting–if you go digging enough, you’ll definitely find some great deals. 
  • Due to increased consumer spending, Walmart will continue, and possibly even amplify discounts, sales and deals for shoppers. It may also grant early access to loyal customers or Walmart+ members. 
  • If you aren’t sure what the most current price tags for an item are, or you suspect it could be on clearance, you can log into or download the Walmart app and use the “Check a Price” tool. This service will show you the price or sale price of an item in real time.
